Browse Our Inspiring Inle Lake Tours

Imagine yourself floating over a mirror-like surface as you gaze at a horizon of green, jagged hills. In the distance you notice a figure in a slender boat like your own, but he stands on one leg, holding a conical net. This is one of the famed leg-rowing fishermen of Inle Lake. Here, on Myanmar’s largest freshwater lake, the pace of life is slower, more in tune with the natural ebb and flow of the seasons. A tour of Inle Lake affords fresh air, relaxation, encounters with the region’s numerous ethnic groups, explorations of floating gardens and villages, and a chance to sample the famed cuisine of the Shan people. For one of the best escapes in Myanmar, head for the lake.

Pretty expensive for what you get. More or less executed what i told – no consulting or giving tipps. But friendly and good process.

We had a wonderful holiday, and Backyard Travel did a great job both of helping us plan it, and looking after us while we were there. They were unfailingly kind and helpful, and were very flexible and accommodating whenever we wanted to make minor changes to the daily plans, either adding or dropping something in the programme. I would definitely recommend them to anyone thinking of a trip to Myanmar but not quite knowing where to start with planning it.
